Daily Reading holy Order

The Sacrament of Holy Orders is the continuation of Christ's priesthood, which He bestowed upon His Apostles. The three levels of the sacrament are the episcopate, the priesthood, and the diaconate.

In the Sacrament of Holy Orders, or Ordination, the priest being ordained vows to lead other Catholics by bringing them the sacraments (especially the Eucharist), by proclaiming the Gospel, and by providing other means to holiness.

PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS

Eternal God

… Bless your  Church

with holy and faithful Priests, Deacons, Brothers and  Sisters.  

Give those you have called to the married state

and those you have chosen to live as single persons in the world,

the special graces that their lives require.  

Form us all in the likeness of your Son

so that in him, with him and through him

we may love you more deeply and serve you

more faithfully, always and everywhere.  

With Mary we ask this through Christ our Lord.   Amen.


IS GOD CALLING YOU?
